Patrick McDaniel

Electrical Engineer


Patrick McDaniel is an Electrical Engineer at NK Labs. His expertise is in PCB design and bring-up, magnetic systems, instrumentation, numerical simulation, and inverse problems and optimization.

Patrick previously spent six years working at Mass General Hospital developing technology for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). His work included designing and building portable, low-cost MRI scanners; developing MRI methods for thermometry, motion estimation, and cerebral physiology quantification; and building electronics for MRI RF sub-systems. He is particularly interested in using numerical optimization to generate often-unconventional designs that can actually be fabricated and deployed.

Patrick received his Bachelor's in Physics and Electrical Engineering, his Masters in Electrical Engineering, and his Ph.D in Electrical Engineering from MIT.
